Adolescents – self-titled LP
One of the original Orange County punk bands, with close ties to Agent Orange and Social Distortion (Steve Sotos and Rikk Agnews’s first bands, respectively), and an intergtal part of Californian’s first-generation scene that included all the greats – Black Flag, The Germs, Dead Kennedys, Circle Jerks etc. Also known as The Blue Album – produced by Middle Class bassist Mike Patton, it was recorded, mixed, and mastered in only four days. Almost straight after it’s releases in 1981 the Adolescents split-up, and members went on to play in Christian Death, D.I. and Legal Weapon.
